Communication and Design with the Internet: A Guide for Architects, Planners and Building Professionals

The Internet is starting to have a profound effect on the building industry. It's not about computers: it's about communication. Fundamental changes in the way that architects, clients, and builders communicate with one another have already begun, yet few architects have discovered all the creative opportunities of this new medium. Jonathan Cohen has introduced thousands of design professionals to the potential of the Internet and the skills of Web site creation in seminars. Here he shows architects, engineers, contractors, building owners, and planners how to use the design skills they already possess to develop and implement an Internet strategy for their firms. Readers will learn how to integrate text, images, video, and other media in interactive Web sites for project management and design collaboration. A dedicated Web site will supplement the book with examples, bookmarks, technical data, and other resources.
